September 2022 Sermon of the Month for Small Congregations

Rev. Phillip Lund

The Sermon of the Month for September is from yours truly, MidAmerica Congregational Life Consultant Reverend Phillip Lund:

Not Just Foolishly Romantic

To be hopeful in these hard times is more than being foolishly romantic, according to historian Howard Zinn. It does, however, require some effort on our part. The good news is that every congregation can tap into the energy it needs to act to make this world a better place. Find out how we can—individually and collectively—behave magnificently in defiance of all hurt and heartbreak around us.
